I communicate expectations consistently and in a clear manner.

You and your team work towards the same goals and expectations for your students. You have clear guidelines and consequences that are SMART. Students always understand how they should complete tasks. Students also know where to go for help and have support, like rubrics and feedback, to improve their work.

Add descriptions to content and tasks so that students understand the what, where, and when of the material.

Be aware that descriptions do not yet appear in the Brightspace app. We do not recommend using the Brightspace Pulse app.
